In my garden I have fresh tomatoes and basil growing. Those are the two key ingredients for my fresh tomato salad. This is one of the easiest and most nutritious “recipes” I know of, and it’s great as a side dish or as a topping on salad or over fresh mozzarella (Yum!). In the summertime, I’ll make a meal of it.
You can adjust the recipe to your taste and omit anything you might not like which is why this is so easy (some people I know like this without the red onion), but this is how I make it.
Tomato and Basil Salad
4 fresh tomatoes
1-2 tablespoons fresh basil (chopped)
1 small red onion
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
